Syphilis Treatment Drugs Market Highlights 2020 – 2029

The syphilis treatment drugs market is estimated to acquire a large revenue by growing at a notable CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2021 – 2029. The growth of the market can be attributed to growing number of incidences of unprotected sex, anonymous sex and intercourse under the influence of drugs. According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2019, nearly 46% of sexually active high school students did not use a condom the last time they had sex. Half of the cases of STD are reported among people aged between 15-24 years. In addition to these, growing prevalence of syphilis in developing nations is also expected to drive market growth in the near future. Furthermore, as the prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) is increasing, the sales of treatment drugs are also evaluated to witness a major surge in the coming years, which in turn is assessed to boost the market growth.
